Gala Concert and CSO: Mancini at 100 with Jesse Mueller, Norm Lewis, and Karen Mason at Ravinia Festival

The music of Henry Mancini, from screens big and small to the stage and beyond.

Actor and director Rob Lindley returns as curator and host of the concert following the 2022-highlight tribute to Stephen Sondheim, whose superlative nods equally to Mancini. Longtime Broadway music director Kevin Stites also returns to conduct the CSO in the magnificent themes, from Peter Gunn to The Pink Panther to “Moon River.” The songs will come courtesy of Broadway stars Jessie Mueller (original Jenna in Waitress, Tony winner in the title role of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), Norm Lewis (first African American in the title role of Phantom of the Opera, as Javert in Les Misérables on Broadway), and Karen Mason (Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard, original Tanya in Mamma Mia!).
